Tuesday Thoughts.

Started the the day with coffee with my bride, she then went to the truck company, but not before saying she would be heading for the restaurant afterwards because somebody needed off and they asked her to be the hostess tonight. That’s two days this week she has gone in for extra duty.

We are having another nice day with sun and a temp in the low 90’s, 91 right now humidity is 39% so it isn’t a killer.

As I said last week we will sit it out for the holiday weekend and then after our company from Canada departs we will plan a weekend with the kid’s at the Lake. They should be getting here in a week and Donna has made time to take a couple of vacation days so we can see the sights together.

My two furballs are lying at my feet on the rug next to the kitchen table as I sit here typing. not a care in the world, They will instantly come back to life in a few minutes when Nicole gets home from school, both wanting their kisses and hugs at the same time.

Thinking I might just throw some Spaghetti and sauce together for supper tonight, Since Donna won’t be here and Nicole’s Mom is working the night shift it is easy and Grandpa & Nicole like it.

Haven’t had the camera out much lately, I will have to do some train shooting or something  just to stay in practice. Of course I haven’t been making as many runs in the truck since fuel went up so it stays here in the garage a lot. I will have to make a run for gas for John Deere tomorrow though.

Anyway I hope all is well with all of our blog friends. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Send me some of that spaghetti Sam. :)

  2. Those two fireballs sure have a "dogs" life!! They are awaiting their playmate to come home and play!!
